Shall the day of parting be the day of gathering?
And shall it be said that my eve was in truth my dawn?

I've added a couple new headers to my Increasingly Less-Brief Guide to Mastodon in the last few days, to address some questions I've seen from new users:

* Why should I add a caption to my picture?
* Why can't I search for a specific word or phrase?
* Why can't I quote someone's toot, like a quote-tweet?
* Weird, my server doesn't have a bunch of these features.

I've also changed the list of phone apps I recommend after some useful feedback.

@dannSwashko , this might be something of interest to you since you've mentioned how much you don't like Salesforce.

That second revision used to really trip me up. Then I experimented with rewriting in to a blank document. I can do a second revision at-speed and -- because the story is all in my head -- still crank out second revision quality.

Things just mesh, even in places I wouldn't have thought to add stuff manually.

I'm still playing with my new Raptor Blackbird POWER9 system. It seems that for normal desktop usage (WWW browser, terminals, text editors etc) it is enough to use 2 cores on the lowest frequency. I even set just 1 thred per core.

Then the CPU stays on 71~73 Celsius all time, the system is quiet and it is not noticeably slower. That's cool.

IT is described here how to do it:

I've been looking at Element CSS, and it looks pretty damn good.

I'm intrigued by its use of custom elements for grid rows and grid columns. That's much cleaner and much more sensible than Bootstrap, Foundation, etc.

The only gripe I have are little things I can easily fix on my own.

@lazarski Haha, yeah the false argument, "Well, if you scrimped & saved, you could pull yourself out of poverty & live the good life." The classic blame the poor scenario... Your follow request is denied with extreme prejudice. I don't have any use for people who support Gab or think that refusing to federate with Gab is "censorship" rather than an exercise of the right to freedom of association.

If you don't like the way your instance admin runs things, then run your own instance.

Still using and as a manually tiling window mangler. :)

We live in a strange world where isn't the biggest memory hog you're likely to have installed. That dubious honor has been going to web browsers for years.
